Hi there 🙂 A very special person’s birthday is around the corner. My kids’ step-mom (who I call my wife-in-law) has got to be one of the most amazing people I know. She loves sunflowers, as they are so summery and happy, so of course that was my only choice for an image on her bday card. With flowers, I usually turn to Power Poppy first, and was certainly not disappointed this time!! This beauty, Sunshine of My Life, is not only beautiful, it’s free!! I colored it with my Copics, then matted it with a dark brown.
As with many of my cards where I want to keep the image the focus, I kept the design of this rather simple. The gingham print background gives a real homey feel to the card. A die cut sentiment in sunflower colors and a few yellow enamel dots finish this card off.
I’d like to enter this in the following:
